The Ruhr Metropolis is a large, sprawling region with so many differently sized cities and large towns. Here, every eighth resident is a from abroad. Considering a population of approximately 5.1 million, that makes more than 630,000 people citizens of foreign countries.

Identifying the most suitable neighbourhood to live in may not be so easy when undertaken alone or from abroad. Busy expats and their families may struggle to find the opportunity to weigh the pros and cons of a locality.

Relocation is more than just moving to a new house in a new location. Professional assistance is at hand in the region for both companies and individuals. Using an agency can provide a level of support to start a new life and job while completing the transition into a brand new environment more smoothly. Especially those with a sturdy grasp of local knowledge.

Experienced corporation representatives and streetwise expats unite in recommending the utilisation of a thorough overview or any professional support offered. However, according to multiple sources within the industry only a third of moves are handled by a relocation agency. Try Frank Faggo and Progedo Relocation in nearby Düsseldorf.

Cycling in the Ruhr Metropolis can be enjoyable and most rewarding. Bike paths criss cross the whole of the region and weave their way across most urban areas. Hop on a bicycle to discover quieter city districts or nearby villages. Try riding along the banks of local rivers, in wilder natural spaces or the open meadows of outlying regions.
